Dream-watcher…

ribbon streaming

 You hide there deep in the shadows,
tell me, dost thou wait for me
to close my eyes,
breathe so deep,
to dream
finally?
Or
art thou
something
other
than a
fear rising dark in my mind,
couldst thou be standing watch o’er me,
a guide, without whom I’d search blind.
There be no answer
forthcoming,
it seems that trust is the key,
you wait there deep
in the shadows,
I
live in hope
you are
light,
an
aid
to
see..

  4. Form reminds of whirling winds.
    O the keys of trust–how they do lock and bind.
    Nicely “dark”, Lady Pen.

    • I never know how a shape will ‘form’ Eva, after I’ve finished (mind you ’tis never finished as such, I just force myself to STOP) a poem, I play about and see if something relates to the words.. .If it doesn’t I just leave it looking erm.. tidier?… I think I’m a natural dark person … it appeals so… 😉 xxx

    We all seem to have to decide whether our watchers are dark or light as we drift off to sleep!🙂

  6. I really agree with the statement above ” We all seem to have to decide whether our watchers are dark or light as we drift off to sleep! “It is when they they come to see you when you are awake. I think that says it all. xx big hugs!

    Loved the actual shape of the poem…what/who is the dream-watcher??
    Lovely to read your stuff again honey.
    Have a great weekend.🙂

    • my thanks Phil, glad you enjoyed the shaping and the words, took a while for it to work out, but worth it in the end.., I claim poetic license and say the reader decides who the watcher is… ’tis ever the same…😉 Have a good weekend too my friend. xx

    • You are so right, Sheila, dark and light play an equal part in our lives, waking and sleeping,… ‘Tis raining here at the mo, but the sun is taking turns, back and forth… You know those Swiss clocks where fine weather and wet weather figures come out ?… well they’d be having a field day…😉 Hugs to you and Li’l Lucy..xxribbon streaming

  16. Always are we watched! whether we walk in the shadows or in the light!.. … We perhaps tend to always think of the watchers as being dark lurking in the shadows… Trusting IS the key..

    • it’s always a pleasure to have you visit Sue, and no problem at all. I’ve been able to concentrate solidly on my poems over the past few weeks, but that will change shortly, as life has a habit of wanting to butt in..😉 … Hope you and yours are fine ‘n’ dandy, my friend, love and light to you… xPenx

  19. The hidden ones, Lady P, watching over us as we drift off to sleep… I like to think that they are there to switch on our dreams, and keep away those night terrors… I like your formatting on this one as well!

    • I like your take on the watcher Sir Aquatom, he seemed to be away last night, (mayhap it’s his Bank Holiday weekend too!!) … so I was up late, unable to sleep perchance to dream… The formatting and shaping I play about with a lot, just to see what I can achieve. 😉 … mayhap I am a pernickety person, but it adds something to my enjoyment too… xxx
